Description
Tailored fine black wool sleeveless jumpsuit with slim three-quarter legs. The front panels feature nine decorative elements each with two gold metallic dome buttons linked by a length of gold metallic chain and attached with a spring clasp. The chain and button elements run horizontally and decrease in length as they descend, finishing at the narrowed waistline.
